Burial and Four Tet have collaborated before, so you know what you’re going to get to an extent: Burial is going to do those drums that sound like sharpening swords, and Four Tet is going to lay a beautiful electronic rattle over the top of everything. It’s a formula that only requires subtle tweaks to stay beautiful, and there’s definitely a lot room to explore it further. Here, they tweak it perfectly by zooming in on a fractured, dusky breakdown midway through. “Nova” will be released on Four Tet’s Text Records at some point in the future.
